Hi all,

Well obviously I was so excited about the technique I forgot to be specific!
*ahem*
I was talking about tsuki kokyunage vs tsuki irimi nage. Now, technically, THEY ARE THE SAME THING, same movements. Irimi nage is a bit more aggressive and 'in control', whereas kokyunage is more fluid (you barely touch uke), that's why it translates into 'breath throw'.

Blessings,

Mona
